Description

For those with smaller veg patches or growing anything in pots, this dwarf curly Kale is the one to go for.

Kale fills the garden with foliage all through the winter, and can be grown in almost any growing conditions. Plant them with tulips, then add annuals to grow through them.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Grows best on soil which has been manured the previous autumn. Protect against cabbage white butterflies with fine netting. Firm the soil well around plant base to prevent wind rock and provide stakes to support tall plants in autumn.
